Traveling on a cable car in San Francisco is  part of the experience.
But imagine being the cable car operator. You not only have to operate
antique machinery, but you also have to warn knuckleheads who come
dangerously close to losing a limb.

Fog and Mist

San-Francisco-Bay

I’m am endlessly fascinated by fog and mist.
I love the atmosphere it creates.
The mystery and whether there’s a monster over the horizon.
I’ve watched one-too-many sci-fi movies.

American Graffiti

San Francisco, Mel's Drive-In, Restaurant, American Graffiti

Before George Lucas changed the American Film landscape with Star Wars, he made American Graffiti. A story set in the 1950’s starring an ensemble cast that included Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss and Harrison Ford (aka Hans Solo). The action takes place in California during one night and Mel’s Drive-In is featured prominently in the narrative. The photograph above was taken in San Francisco.

By the way, if you haven’t seen American Graffiti I highly recommend the movie.
